The big city was all about the country as the first annual FarmBorough Festival took over New York's Randall's Island for three days of nonstop country music on two stages. The theme weaved throughout every set — other than braving the rain — seemed to be the element of surprise, as acts threw in unexpected cover songs and unpredictable antics. Friday headliner Dierks Bentley's  set included a beer-chugging contest with a fan and his unique take on a Taylor Swift song. And though he himself was nowhere to be seen, Tom Petty provided much of the evenings' soundtracks. Here are our most memorable moments from the inaugural FarmBorough fest.
